Early Origins of the Meux family


The surname Meux was first found in Picardy (French: Picardie) in northern France, where this eminent family held a family seat in the honor of De Limeux, a village in the ancient department of Cher in the Somme.

The family branched north into Flanders, and west into Normandy where they held considerable estates before the 16th century. They also branched to Brittany where they held a family seat at Cree'Hriou, Kerigonan, and Kerveguen.

Gabriel Lemieux, born in 1626, son of Louis and Marie (née Lugan), worked as a coppersmith in Quebec. He married Marguerite LeBoeuf, born in 1640, daughter of Guillaume and Marguerite (née Milot), on 3rd September 1658. His second marriage was to Marthe Beauregard, born in 1643, on 26th November 1671. They remained together until Marthe passed away in Lévis on 22nd October 1728. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
